  • Fill Tank Guard $ overflowing when filling up Danny Prosser, WA
    By  (I am an Owner) on Nov 09, 2011

    Love the bike with one exception, the fill guard in the filler neck on the gas tank. I haven't found a gas pump yet that pumps slow enough to keep the filler neck from over flowing. Even in short small gentle squezes on the pump handle, it foams up and overflows onto the tank and I have to wash off ...

  • Back to riding after 10 years....Second bike ever!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Nov 01, 2010

    If you are new to riding you will love this bike. The power and weight distribution are just right for a beginner yet more than adequate for most seasoned riders. I purchased mine new in July and have 1000 miles on it. The more I ride it, the more I want to ride it. Was torn between it and the ...

  • Great Bike!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jul 13, 2010

    I bought the bike in Oct. of last year. Looked and compared with the Kaw. Vulcan 900, Sportster 1200, but settled for the 950 and I made the right choice. The lines on this bike are great. Handling and performance are second to none and the looks aren't bad either. I've already amassed over 4100 ...

  • Great Bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jun 17, 2010

    I shopped for months comparing models and chose the V Star 950 over the Honda Shadow and others and I am so glad I did. This bike is great performing, comfortable to ride (seat could be softer), smooth shifting and has great lines for a long sleek and stylish look.

  • Great BIke !!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Nov 07, 2009

    Have owned this bike for three months now. Previously had a 500cc Honda. This bike, for the money, can't be beat. It is a fantastic handleing bike, plenty of torque, nimble in the turns and overall puts a smile on your face when ever you take it out. Looked at them all, settled for this one and glad ...

  • Great ride and value.
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 17, 2009

    Great fun bike, handles very well and feels light, good looking too. The only negative I have is the very poor stock saddle which becomes uncomfortable very quickly (
